The purposeful classroom environment emphasizes thorough mastery of subject, high standards of achievement, good study habits, and personal responsibility.

Art and music classes are part of the weekly schedule for all grades and dance is included as a regular part of the PE program. A unique aspect to Westminster School is its drama program. All students participate in theater, performing in a class play every year, culminating with a Shakespeare play in the 7th grade and a Broadway musical in the 8th grade.

This rich and varied program is supported by extensive optional extracurricular clubs and activities, including Builders Club (community service), Chess, Chorus, Orchestra, French Club, Math Counts, Odyssey of the Mind, Science Olympiad, as well as team sports in basketball, soccer, softball, and track and field. Athletic competitions, art exhibitions, math contests, science fairs, and talent shows provide many opportunities for students to explore and share their talents.

Westminster parents appreciate that the daily school life is supported by an array of programs, including small-group teacher-provided academic support which is built into the school day, extended care, summer and intersession camps, frequent field trips, after-school enrichment classes, door-to-door bus service, and an optional lunch program.
